SRCD Anti-Racist Developmental Science Summit

SRCD Summit Panama City, Panama
The Society for Research in Child Development (SRCD) is proud to present the "SRCD Anti-Racist Developmental Science Summit: Transforming Research, Practices, and Policies." This inaugural summit aims to bring together developmental scientists to address critical issues related to racial equity and justice in developmental science.  The #SRCDSummit24 will feature interactive sessions to encourage participant collaboration and engagement. These sessions will provide opportunities for attendees to discuss challenges, share best practices, and develop actionable strategies to implement into their respective research studies and organizations. Throughout the Summit, attendees will have ample opportunities to network and build connections with fellow researchers, policymakers, and practitioners equally committed to advancing antiracist developmental science.  Join us at "SRCD Anti-Racist Developmental Science Summit: Transforming Research, Practices, and Policies" as we collectively work towards creating a more equitable and just future for all children, regardless of their background or identity. Together, we can make a meaningful impact and shape the future of developmental science to be truly antiracist and inclusive.
